Android the next RIA platform?

 It seems like Android would be a nice replacement for flash, silverlight,
flex, etc, for your desktop OS.

Among other things, it will probably save Google a lot of dough by
distributing a Android plugin for browsers, and then feed Youtube videos
through Android instead of Flash.

Any thoughts?

 Top idea!

I'm sold, now where do I sign  :-)

Suppose you could also have an android widget to put on your desktop  :-) 

I'm all for it!

 i would  agree with you if the android plugin could run all flex based
apps too.

Worse, to run Android apps, you need the VM first, which would mean
